La Strada offered a glimpse of its romanticized indie sound in its 2008 self-titled EP. Now, the band has spent time in the studio and release a full-length debut this month, expanding from the EP to include poppier additions. But to really get a sense of what the new album, “New Home,” is like, we leave that up to our exclusive Mus-o-meter.

Take the old-world vibes of Beirut’s 2006 debut, “Gulag Orkestar.” Then add …

The languid vocal stylings of Neutral Milk Hotel’s 1996 debut “On Avery Island.” Then add …

The playful instrumentation of Badly Drawn Boy’s “The House of Bewilderbe­ast.”

The result? La Strada’s debut, “New Home.”
